Guillermo Perales, Successful MBA Alumnus

Guillermo Perales, one of the largest entrepreneurs in the Dallas area, is a Texas A&M graduate. He came to Texas A&M for graduate school and earned a Master of Business Administration (MBA). Guillermo Perales has great praise for his program at Texas A&M. He recalls, “I was really challenged at Texas A&M to think critically about all aspects of business. When I graduated, I was ready to do business in the real world. I also developed a great network of friends and colleagues at Texas A&M. On a personal note, I was new to the United States when I started this program, and everyone was very kind and welcoming.”

After earning his MBA, Guillermo Perales went on to become of the largest franchise owners in the country. He is the owner of Sun Holdings, LLC, which owns franchises of service industry companies across the United States.
